As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at now, living in the land of the happy people.

The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love.

Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Dinner for... How Many?!

Headed out for a late night dinner with some business associates and friends of mine.
 Everyone showed up super late but while I was sitting there at the bar waiting this guy walked in.
Anyone who's from Toronto knows of that club, it's not what you think it is.  Sometimes a name IS just a name... nothing sexy about that club.  Turns out he too is from Toronto but he's been here for something like 20 years, wow.
 Dinner was finally served but it was totally worth the wait.  It was amazing.
I thought they're just be 4 of us at the table tonight but our table just kept on growing and growing.
I know the three at my end of the table but by the end of the night I had wined and dined with the others.  One of the ladies even drove me home.  That's just how life is... spontaneously beautiful.
